Phase Two: Week Three. Day 18| Six Weeks to Shreds

Warm up: 

 
  • 2-3 minute jump rope

Workout:

  • Incline DB flyes: 3 x 21-30. 20 lb (1 minute jump rope between sets)
  • DB flyes: 3 x 21-30. 20 lb (1 minute bench step up between sets)
  • Cable Crossover: 3 x 21-30. 40 lb (1 minute squat jumps between each set)
  • Triceps Pushdown: 3 x 21-30. 70 lb (1 minute side to side shuffle between each set)
  • Standing DB triceps extension: 3 x 21-30. 15 lb ( 1 minute kettlebell swings – 8kg between each set)
  • Cable lying triceps extension: 3 x 21-30. 30 lb ( 1 minute goblet squat – 30 lb between each set)
  • Crunches: 3 x 21-30 (1 minute running in place between each set)
  • Standing oblique cable crunch: 3 x 21-30. 30 lb (1 minute lunge jumps between each set)

As you can tell, today was a much higher rep range and a different kind of burn. I was starting to feel real exhausted before starting this workout but I pushed through, the flyes definitely are harder when doing much higher reps. When doing higher reps, I always use a lower weight that isn’t “too easy” but not heavy either  – I choose a weight that I can lift for the prescribed amount of weights. The cardio between sets wasn’t hard today, I pushed through it fine but talk about the soreness in my legs.

Hello! I have just recently graduated with my exercise science degree May 2016, yay! I am more than happy; and decided that since my passion is for fitness/health, I would write about it and share my journey with others because in my opinion health is everything (both mental and physical). I am 24 years old, and reside in the states. I enjoy being active anyway possible and want to get my cert in personal trainer and also be a wellness coach. I love to eat and don't believe in eliminating, but rather moderation. I hope that my blog post will inspire, motivate and encourage you all to want to be the healthiest person you can be! It all begins with "I can" and "I will" :) -Shay-lon P.S feel free to follow me on social media and or email me, l don't mind answering questions or simply networking. Would love to hear from you all.
